Bulldogs rally past Panthers

Published: Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 02:26 AM.

Senior quarterback Khalil Foster hit Matt Gillis with a 5-yard touchdown pass with two minutes left in the fourth quarter to give the Crestview High School football team a 14-13 come-from-behind win over Milton.

The Bulldogs (1-0) trailed all but the final two minutes as the Panthers jumped to a 10-0 lead at the half.

Crestview scored on its first possession of the second half when Foster hit D.J. Stewart with a 1-yard touchdown pass.

"It was very, very ugly," Bulldog coach Tim Hatten said. "We didn't execute our offense at all.

"We will look at the film and get better."

Hatten praised defensive players JaQuan Daniels, Kyle Koontz, Marcus Flavors and Tyrone Baker for keeping the pressure on the Panther offense.

But he said it was the defensive play of an offensive lineman that probably saved the day for Crestview.
